Additional information: 
You're looking at an incredible vintage 1941 pattern RAF Sidcot Flight Suit used during WW2. The name Sidcot came from Sir Sidney Cotton, an australian born inventor and aviation pioneer. He grew up partly in England and joined the Royal Naval Air Service in 1915. During WWI he was a combat pilot in the RAF and flew bombing missions over France & Germany. His experience with high level and low-temperature flying led Cotton in 1917 to develop the revolutionary new "Sidcot" suit, a flying suit which solved the problem pilots had in keeping warm in the cockpit. This flying suit was widely used by the RAF until the 1950s.

Measurements are listed in inches on picture 7.
